COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Ingredients: 2 row German pale malt; Czech Saaz, German Northern Brewer hops.
Heaps o’ hops are hiding under the full, frothy head of this elegant Pils. All German malt subtleties linger beneath a long dry finish of this classy quencher. One of Michael Jackson’s 500 Classic Brews

Bottle at KØ09. OK hop aroma, weakly citric. Clear golden colour. Distinct bitterness, slightly rough and quite clean. Apart from the bitterness, it is slightly boring.

12 oz bottle. I’m not a pilsner fan but I thought this one may be able to convert me. It didn’t. Poured a light yellow with a strong white head -- not far from a cheap American macro in appearance. Taste was slightly better than the average pilsner, but not much. Grassy taste, but not a whole lot going on here. Not my thing.

Hazy gold with a white head. Big yeasty, peppery pale lager aromas. Medium body with a rough mouthfeel. Nice flavor is dryish spices with dusty pale malts. Has a peppery dry bitterness to finish. Nice Pils.

12 oz bottle, Pours yellow with a small quickly receding white head. Aroma is faint hops with some grass/grain. Palate is thin and dry, but smooth. Flavor is mild floral hops. No where near as strong as some raters have discussed. Definite malt background. Not as crisp and clean as I expected. That being said, I will confess to the bottle being 3 months past it’s sell date. I will re rate when I can get a fresher bottle.

Flavor is much better than the aroma. This beer smells like a wet dog that has been smoking dope. Flavor has a hop bite, citrus and flower. Not a bad beer, but I don’t like it as much as everyone else.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Clear golden color with a meduim frothy white head. Light hoppy aroma. Fairly hoppy flavor, with a little malt, pepper, and yeast. A good pilsner.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Light yellow with a decent white head. Nose was a little weak, with only hops apparent. Very light flavor, the hops don’t overpower anything. The finish is very smooth, with some hints of fruits. Goes down easy without a bitter aftertaste like some other pilsners.

okay....wow....is this the same beer that everyone else has tried? this is by no means a wonderful beer, or has any potential to be a beer in such a catergory....golden brown body that is somewhat transparent and similar to a miller high life....aroma is indistinct and is only of wheat and florals....flavor is of a light macro as well, with a touch of flowery hops...nothing special by any standards
